Behind the Dish 

2013 Season 

Standing as the longest running and most successful science podcast, The Skeptics' 
Guide to the Universe balances informative and fresh discussion with a 
lighthearted, conversational rapport between panelists Dr. Steven Novella, his 
brother Bob, Perry DeAngelis and Evan Bernstein. Whereas the podcast would go 
on to include news, emails, and science-themed trivia games, it was more topic- 
based at its inception in 2005, and here the cast discuss skeptical issues like 
astrology and conspiracy theories.
